Primary Food Processing

Milmeq custom designs systems to optimise processing for meat operations including beef, sheep, pork, goats, calves and deer. This includes designs for ritual slaughter process requirements, such as Halal.

In the early 1980s Milmeq pioneered the inverted processing system for lamb and sheep. Today this is recognised as setting the global industry standard, minimising carcass contamination and thus increasing product quality as well as improving operating efficiencies.

Our Primary Food Processing system expertise includes complete abattoir design for beef and sheep processing, overhead conveyor configurations for a wide range of animal breeds, ages, throughput rates and manning levels, and a range of semi- and fully-automated machines (including robotics) to assist with all stages of red meat processing.

Hock Removal

Milmeq has developed equipment for the efficient removal of hocks to avoid contamination of the carcass.

Our hock removal systems have been specifically designed to ensure operator safety, prevent dust and control carcass swing.

The hind leg hock saw is a simple and reliable unit providing automatic assistance for the removal of hocks as the last operation on the hindleg conveyor.

Complete and clean hock removal allows for easier hide or pelt removal over the hind legs.

Twin auto hock cutter designs are also available which include automatic height adjustment through the use of vision sensing technology.

All hock removal equipment is supplied with wash and sterilising cabinets.

For beef:

  • Manual single hock cutter
